Using Film to Create Sustainable Community Connections

Although it may seem simple, one of the biggest challenges in creating change is simply getting the conversation started. Film offers a visually engaging and stimulating perspective to examine a wide variety of complex issues that are everpresent in diverse communities. It utilizes storytelling as the platform to deliver relevant, expert information to educate and engage audiences while retaining elements of a structured Extension program. The use of such an innovative technique allows Extension to promote sustainability education and support actions that positively impact communities.
